Alexis Gruss circus show presents for a new season – running from September 18, 2021 to March 6, 2022 – their latest horse circus creation called “Folies Gruss” including a food moment to share with the artists!

After a successful 2019/2020 season, Alexis Gruss Circus returns with “Folies Gruss” for this season 2021/2022.
The Folies Gruss are back in Paris, from September 18, 2021 to March 6, 2022 for an extra season at the Porte de Passy.

On the menu: a new circus and horse show performed by the Gruss family, as well as a pre-show, a meal, and especially moments of sharing with the artists.

Two years ago, we attended the first season of Folies Gruss and this was a wonderful moment.

Treat to the eyes and tastebuds, the Compagnie Alexis Gruss is back with the Folies, a very trendy concept in the Belle Epoque era. These “Folies Gruss” 2021 version pair show and food: you are invited to come very early to enjoy the food offer provided by the Gruss circus and eat prior to the show while enjoying the many entertainments carried out by the company’s artists.

As soon as you get in the circus tent, horses are there. Artists are your hosts: during your meal, they perform a pre-show, and the orchestra as well as singer Candice Parise are already there as well.

This pre-show is rather friendly: one eats while enjoying circus acts. And in the meantime, children are taught how to act as a clown or acrobat with the Gruss artists in the kids area.

Then, head to the main tent for the Alexis Gruss show.
Unlike the previous years, the Gruss family are (almost) the only ones performing. Everything (or almost) is performed by the very family excluding singing and music.

The Gruss family can do it all: juggling, high-wire act, horse breaking, acrobatic acts, clown acts, and a bit of music. Each member of Alexis Gruss’s family has a talent and help the family show.

And even when the show is over, it is not entirely over: artists wait for you to chat with you if you want.

Thanks to the “Folies Gruss”, you can visit the place and meet the Gruss family, equestrians for six generations. A festive and immersive experience to enjoy with your family or friends.
